Cops is back on the beat — but you won’t be able to watch the show Stateside.
The series has resumed filming in Spokane County, Wash., three months after the long-running program was cancelled at Paramount Network in the wake of protests against systemic racism and police brutality. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the episodes being shot are intended to only air in international territories where Cops is still running. Production restarted in September and is expected to last through early November.
“We have a longstanding relationship with Cops and [series producer] Langley Productions, and we are pleased they have decided to return, highlighting the outstanding work our deputies provide to all of you,” the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
